The contrast between the two actors couldn’t seem more apparent. Robert Duvall, introduced first to the standing-room-only audience at Film Independent’s pre-release screening of “The Judge” at the L.A. County Museum of Art, is quintessentially straight-faced, seemingly carved from granite, reserved and quiet. Robert Downey Jr., on the other hand, bounces onto the stage, all whip-smart energy and volleys of words, a smile flashing every few moments.
